  1. No Major Lance "Monkey Time." Too obvious or popular? Great selection regardless.

    1. I deicided to not include the Major Lance tune cause I used the the song as a title on the mixtape instead:-) But it's a fantastic tune of course!

  5. Hi!

    Catching up. GREAT comp! All songs "new hears" here & "new" artists too! Have a few more that could have been added (might list them later) but an enjoyable collection.

    Cheers!

    Ciao! For now.
